Help us help the City to fulfill the promise of a complete bike network
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's number one goal is to create a Citywide Bike Network that will link the city with bike lanes, separated bike paths and calm streets where everyone from an eight-year-old child to an eighty-year-old grandmother would feel safe and confident bicycling. Here's what is happening right now to make this a reality:
Linking San Francisco One Bike Lane at a Time
The City has the green light to start striping approved Bike Plan projects, which will add over 30 miles of new bike lanes across San Francisco. These links are really adding up and creating connections all across the city. Find out where the next bike lanes will be added here.
This unprecedented number of bike lanes is the result of effective SF Bicycle Coalition advocacy and countless hours of grassroots organizing by our committed members, volunteers and staff. In June 2009, hundreds of Bicycle Coalition members, including mothers with children in tow, business owners, and department heads, stood up at City Hall to offer decision makers over three hours of compelling testimony for why streets should be safer for everyone. SF Bicycle Coalition staff presented thousands of letters from businesses and individuals that reinforced the already broad and diverse support for biking improvements in every neighborhood in San Francisco. After the testimony, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board then voted to adopt the 2009 San Francisco Bicycle Plan (a 5-year master plan and ambitious roadmap) to improve the safety of bicycling and gave the green light to 45 Bike Network Improvement Projects which will add more than 30 miles of bike lanes across the city.
